Thundersport GB: Towers quits title defence in shock move

In News, Thundersport GB

REIGNING Supertwin champion Jonny Towers has sensationally quit his chase for a second title just hours after scorching to pole at Cadwell Park.

RST’s main man headed to the Lincolnshire circuit with an 80-point lead over Krämer Motorcycles rider Lukas Wimmer, but he decided to put an end to his championship defence before even hitting the track for the first race.

Despite not having it all his own way this season, with four wins to Wimmer’s two, Towers says he’s ready for a change.

“I just qualified on pole, but the enjoyment and challenge is gone, and I need to do something in another class to reignite my enthusiasm,” he told UK Clubsport. “I’m just going through the motions and it’s not happening for me, so I’ve packed up racing on the Supertwins.

“I’ve been thinking about it since Oulton, but thought I may change my mind when I got here. And even after qualifying and going fastest, I felt the same – so I’ve withdrawn.

“There’s another project on the go which is getting me really excited, but I’m definitely not done – watch this space…”
